Abstract

This article seeks in the first instance to identify and exemplify the various senses in which the term `conative' has been used in the descriptive and theoretical literature. It then goes on to elucidate, where possible, the connections between these uses, and to examine the history of the term. The study concludes with some reflections on the status of linguistic terminology and the issues that may arise when technical vocabulary is subject to some of the same processes of semantic shift that affect words in everyday usage.
